Within the first few minutes, you meet a strange almost road-killed armadillo, see his insides with tire treads on them, and eventually see other mutilated animals, really, you thought it would be funny to hang the musical owls from a beam by their necks? Between that and the horribly gross looking characters, it was just too much.
In the hopes that the movie would get better, we did stick it out until the end. Sadly to day, it didn't really get any better. The end was ok, but I certainly wouldn't sit through the whole thing just to get to the mediocre end.
My husband said, "I know I've seen worse movies... I just can't think of any right now."
My advice: skip this one, especially if you have kids. You'll end up dealing with nightmares.

About the Movie Rango:
Get ready to tango with RANGO, a winner with critics and audiences that’s “like nothing you’ve ever seen before” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). Johnny Depp is spectacular as Rango, a kooky pet chameleon who gets tossed into a wild and raucous town in desperate need of a hero. Refreshingly original with eye-popping animation, RANGO is “loads of fun and genuinely funny” (Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times). And now you can get more RANGO in the Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack with Digital Copy featuring the never-before-seen ending, 10 deleted scenes and exclusive interactive Blu-ray features including picture-in-picture storyboards and an interactive field trip to Dirt, and so much more.
